Mistake No. 1: Bad scarring When it comes to scars from big procedures like tummy tucks and breast lifts, many believe it's a surgeon's skill that determines how badly you'll scar post surgery.

A skilled plastic surgeon "can do the same exact closure on two different people, and one heals with imperceptible scars and one doesn't," she says. Something important to keep in mind before going under the knife -- especially if you've got a darker complexion and high skin pigmentation, which Bayati says put you in the high risk category for scarring.
